BELFAST, Maine — One of the people charged with operating a methamphetamine laboratory on High Street in Belfast this spring will spend two years in prison.

Edward R. Mylen III, 36, of Belfast pleaded guilty this week to the charge of operating a meth lab and unlawful possession of methamphetamine at Waldo County court. He was sentenced to six years in prison with all but two years suspended. After he finishes serving his sentence, he is required to spend four years on probation.

Mylen, Michael J. Redding, 27, of Belfast and Krystyl Robbins, 23, of Belfast were indicted in May by the Waldo County grand jury in connection with the March drug bust. At that time, agents from the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency’s midcoast task force arrested Mylen and Redding after raiding the High Street residence, according to a previously published BDN report. About 2 grams of meth were found during the raid.

Because the manufacturing of meth is dangerous, members of the MDEA’s Clandestine Laboratory Enforcement Team were called in to seize the evidence, according to BDN archives.
